This is actually a little bit of a departure from the usual Story Secrets - not because it's a "guy" book (we've had Swati Avasthi's SPLIT, Allan Stratton's BORDERLINE) or even because it's a video response (watch Sara Zarr talk about ONCE WAS LOST!) - but because this is the first non-fiction book to be featured.
As a memoirist and inspirational speaker, Josh Sundquist is in the business of telling his own secrets - and he does so with wit, charm, and I daresay a a huge dose of inspiration. Plus he's a really nice guy and didn't mangle my last name. :)
Josh is here to talk about his debut book, JUST DON'T FALL: HOW I GREW UP, CONQUERED ILLNESS, AND MADE IT DOWN THE MOUNTAIN. Welcome, Josh!
The JUST DON'T FALL Giveaway:
We have TWO copies of Josh's book to give away - I gave a copy to my nephew, and he says it's "good." Which is high praise from a guy of few words!
So just leave a comment below about either a) what is inspiring to you or b) why you'd like to read Josh's book. Since there's lots going on this week with Operation Teen Book Drop, I'm extending the usual deadline by one week - we'll tally them up by 5pm PST Monday, April 26 - please include a way to contact you. Comment away!
